Tagliatelle with cockles


Tagliatelle with cockles
In this recipe, the cockles and pasta are prepared separately, then mixed with the sauce at the last minute.

The cockles are first cooked quickly, then shelled carefully (I find it unpleasant to have to do this on the plate) and the cooking juices are used to prepare a cream sauce.

The tagliatelle are cooked alongside, then the cockles are added with spring onions and the sauce.
